4. Hi, welcome to DU. I really like the black and white photographs.

And this part of the text I agree with, it raises huge questions about this country, the violent response to this movement:

Given this human connectedness, OWS allows for the inclusion of all voices to be heard with equal importance. Race, gender, sexual identity, and socioeconomic status are not impediments to having your point of view recognized, which is in stark contrast to today's structure where only money equals free speech. This is true democracy in action and something I feel can be learned from and emulated on a wider scale.

Yet, despite the virtues of the movement, the sheer level of opposition from authorities on local, state and federal levels has surprised me in covering OWS. Numerous times, I have witnessed unnecessary violence towards those peacefully protesting under the pretext of "protecting and serving," leaving me to wonder just exactly who is being "protected and served."

I have to say my favorite was the doughnut on the fishing pole.
